Local Medical Students Posting

The Sengkang General Hospital (SKH) undergraduate rotations are designed to develop well-rounded clinically competent medical students in all aspects of medicine. SKH has a range of clinical specialties, and a comprehensive span of patient case-mixes. The various clinical rotations are structured to provide a balanced and diverse exposure to inpatient, outpatient and occasional long-term care population.

During the program, students will work closely with clinicians whose interests span, not only clinical work but also medical education, research and healthcare administration. We have a team of dedicated clinical faculty who will provide you with the best possible tutelage in various branches of medicine and specialty care.
